The kids at my school have no clue when it comes to money. My dad taught me about money when I was 5 and by 10 I was investing in Stock Options and helping him balance the family budget. By 12 I was making more money in the stock market than I was from my allowance. I am hoping to retire by age 25. But my friends think that money comes from mom and that's it.
Here in Nevada, 45% of the kids don't even graduate high school. So what are their chances after this? They will get some crappy job making minimum wage and living at home till 30, have no life and never make anything of themselves. My dad says my friends are aspiring to be homeless people. I want to prove him wrong.
